The ACME Fender Rocketbass X-TNT Blast 3000

The character is strongly inspired by singer Alex Kapranos' style in Franz Ferdinand's music video 'Walk Away'. Of course, I immediately signed a multi billion dollar contract with leading-edge ACME Corporation.

Two-page spread in the July 1964 issue of McCall's magazine (via The Walt Disney Family Museum):

Why do you want to play chess with me?

About using references in character design and drawing a cartoon duck's beak front view. This was a speed demo from a couple of weeks ago. (Reference stills: Ingmar Bergman's "The Seventh Seal", 1957. All rights reserved.)

Drawing process thingies

Following up the last posting. By the by, this very painting by Carl Spitzweg always automatically pops up in my mind when drawing characters associated with delivery and all sorts of postal services. It's a universal reference to me:
